A standing offer is a continuing offer by a supplier or suppliers to provide specified goods and services for a predetermined length of time, usually at a predetermined price and in accordance with pre-agreed terms and conditions.
A standing offer can be utilised by Defence and other participating agencies when it contains a multi agency access clause. Standing offers are published within the Australian Government Electronic Tender System (AusTender) website of the Department of Finance.
One of these standing offers is the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment - Support Services (CAS-SS) standing offer panel. The CAS-SS panel standardises the contracting of a diverse range of support services under a common deed - making it a key initiative in CASG's reform plan and improving efficiency for both Defence and the industry.

Another major standing offer panel is the Professional Services Panel (PSP). The PSP has been established to support the professional services needs of Defence. The PSP Standing Offer Notice ID on AusTender is SON2071251.
